This is my go to trail in the area and is beautiful. During the off season I seldom see anyone. I've done this one at least 10 times with a half dozen different people. Miles of awesome redwoods with a few viewpoints of the Smith River with 2 places you can walk down to. Near the junction during part of the summer they put up a temporary bridge to Jed Smith campground and the trail gets more use. The trail also goes above and next to Mill Creek. Mill Creek is a major salmon spawning ground and farther up off this trail is closed during spawning season. The actual length of this trail is 10.1 miles per a friend's gps to Howland Hills Rd.
